Smart and romantic in design, yet reassuringly unpretentious in attitude Casa Belvedere offers a relaxed retreat with heart-stopping magnificent views of the endless Cretan Blue, the olive groves, earth and the sea combined. Attentive service, a large terrace that is perfect platform for sunbathing while admiring the panoramic views, a Jacuzzi-enhanced sanctuary made for sea-gazing and a degree of pampering and indulgence are the highlights of Casa Belvedere Located in the unique and breathtaking Kournas Village and just a few minutes’ drive away of Crete’s picturesque Towns of Chania and Rethymnon. Built with smart design, it affords guests with everything they need in order to enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The rooms of the house are functionally decorated.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful design inside & out. Very comfortable beds & well equipped kitchen. Stunning views & 5 star treatment from the wonderful Tanja & Georgios.

The village is very peaceful and a perfect location for exploring north & south coasts.
We would definitely return!

We had a wonderful time in Tanja's holiday home and apartment. Everything was just perfect for us and even more beautiful than in the pictures. There was plenty of space for our large group of adults and children. Tanja has thought of everything, from booking a rental car, to toys for the children and delicious wine for the adults. There is so much to explore in Kournas and the surrounding area and the people there were so lovely. We will be back!

We spent 10 days in the Casa Belvedera in the summer and we loved it. We will definitely be back. Tanja is a real sweetheart as a hostess and you can tell that she really enjoys being a host. She has a lot of heart and lots of tips for trips in the area. The place is small but lovely, very idyllic. All the restaurant owners are nice and you quickly feel at home. A wonderful holiday all around!

We have already had the apartment on the upper floor several times with a large roof terrace with pool/jacuzzi, sun loungers and shaded dining table (there is a mini kitchen with a fridge upstairs). From the roof terrace, with a turn of the head, you can see the mountains and olive groves on one side and the Mediterranean on the other side; you couldn't wish for a much better view (the sunsets are also beautiful to enjoy). The year before our first stay, we were allowed to take a tour of the complex with Tanja, and we decided then and there: this is it! With the location, the facilities and the hostess, a holiday on Crete couldn't get any better! And after five stays at Casa Belvedere with Tanja, we can continue to underline this twice and three times over. We will be staying here again in 2024.
The apartment has two large air-conditioned bedrooms (and 2 single beds in the staircase to the roof terrace). A large living/dining room and a fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, etc.). The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub with shower and a large mirror. The washing machine is hidden in the stairs to the roof terrace. On the "living level" there are two more terraces, where you can have a wonderful breakfast on the mountain side in the morning. In addition to the mini kitchen upstairs, there is also a bathroom with shower and toilet. There is stable and fast WiFi and two TVs. The care provided by the hostess with fresh towels, bed linen, information and so on is an A+ with *.
In the village of Kournas there are three taverns, all of which are worth a visit and can be reached on foot in two to three minutes (Tavern Babis, Kali Kardia, Tavern Kournas (in alphabetical order without rating)). There is also a bakery where you can also find some things for daily needs, a hairdresser, kafenions, a café/ouzerie,... at Mandali there are local products and they lead really interesting and fun hikes with donkeys, there is something for every fitness level. The two major airports on Crete are very easy to reach by car. In the town of Kavros there are several supermarkets, a petrol station and everything you need for your daily needs and for tourists. And of course, don't forget the miles of sandy beach. With a bit of luck, there will be a Greek wedding taking place in the church right next door.

Even though it may sound like something from an advertising brochure, we wrote this of our own free will and without any compensation or discount, because for us it is the perfect place for a holiday in Crete.

Great villa, very tastefully decorated. Super nice, helpful hostess. You feel completely at home. We received lots of tips for excursions. The location is great with delicious taverns right in the neighborhood and just 5 minutes by car from the sea.

In mid-September 2023, we, 4 adults, stayed for 2 weeks in the upper floor apartment of the Casa Belvedere in the beautiful mountain village of Kournas.

Even before the firm booking, the landlady Tanja was always available for information and inquiries via messenger, which was very helpful.

What was particularly great for us was that she had reserved the two rental cars for us in advance, so that we could simply get into the cars at the airport without any stress.

We were also able to contact Tanja at any time during our stay and she provided us with valuable tips on shopping and excursions.

The highlight of the well-kept and well-equipped apartment is the large roof terrace with a small pool, from which you have a wonderful view of the mountains and the sea.

The kitchen has everything you need for self-catering. It was also particularly important to us that there was a washing machine and that the WiFi worked very reliably.

Away from mass tourism, Kournas is a lively village with 3 good taverns, which also sell all food to take away if you prefer to eat at home.

4 km away there is a fairly large supermarket for daily needs and a beautiful beach with restaurants, toilets, showers and loungers, which were free of charge out of season.

We felt very comfortable at Casa Belvedere and would choose the accommodation again on our next holiday in Crete.
